Brown Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

Brown Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

When you’re talking about cookies, it is often said that using brown sugar will result in a chewier cookie. This is partially true, as brown sugar does have a higher moisture content than regular sugar and that can help a cookie stay more moist – and therefore, chewier. It is not the only thing that can make a cookie chewy, however, as the amount of ... Read More »

Pizzelles

Pizzelles

Pizzelles are thin, round waffle-like Italian cookies. They’re cooked on a special little griddle that gives them a crisp texture and imprints them with a delicate floral patter. The traditional pizzelle is flavored with anise extract, which gives the cookies a subtle licorice flavor. I flavored mine with vanilla extract. They’re beautiful to look at, and very tasty to eat. They’re also very versatile little ... Read More »

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

As much as I enjoy cookies and milk, I have to admit that I tend to lean towards cookies and coffee. I tend to drink more coffee than milk, although I do put steamed milk into my coffee when I’m making lattes and such, and it’s hard to beat the way that hot coffee can soak into a dunked cookie – especially when chocolate chips ...

That being ... Read More »

These chewy bar cookies have a layers of chocolate, nuts and coconut, soaked in sweetened condensed milk, and all stacked on a graham cracker crust. They’re ... Read More »

Butterscotch Thins

Brown sugar and butter are the two main components of butterscotch, but for some reason, it is very tricky to really nail down the flavor – if it were easy, most chocolate chip cookies would have a strong butterscotch flavor, not just a hint of brown sugar. These cookies, on the other hand, do have a butterscotch flavor. They have a lot of brown sugar ... Read More »

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Sunflower Butter Cookies

Peanut butter is unquestionably the go-to nut butter in the kitchen. It has a lot of flavor and it’s readily available, usually at a much better price than other nut butters. But as with all things food-related, it’s nice to have some other options and deviate from the standard from time to time. In this case, that means experimenting with some non-peanut butter nut butter ... Read More »
